VINTAGE TEA TRIPS TURN TWO
You know the saying that a Sunday well spent brings a week of content. Well I can assure you that is most certainly the case. This September we turned 2 years old and to celebrate we did what we do best – ate and drank our way around Dublin City Centre.
The whole team gathered together and we did the Fab Food Trail. If you haven’t heard of FFT they’re a company that organise walking tours of Dublin stopping in little restaurants and cafes sampling food, wine and even whiskey while taking in facts and tidbits of information not only about our lovely city but also about the establishments visited.
Aside from sampling all the delicious food listening to the personal stories from the owners and workers of the places we visited was my favourite. For example I didn’t know that the Swan pub has the oldest taps in Dublin or that the Pepper Pot Cafe bake all their own bread and pastries fresh every morning. I didn’t know that sea salt ice cream existed or that you can buy stonebaked pizza from a window on Aungier Street.
The route took us from Temple Bar to the Creative Quarter to a busy shopping street to a corner pub. We visited the well established Fallon & Byrne and the newly opened Loose Canon. We started with wine, had ice cream before pizza and topped it all of with whiskey in a pub over 350 years old!
It was a great way to discover Dublin and eat and learn about the foodie culture that is booming throughout this small city. If you’re looking for something to do we can’t recommend this enough. The route changes but the full list of places that we visited were Piglet, Fallon & Byrne, Loose Canon Cheese & Wine, The Pepper Pot Cafe, Murphy’s Ice Cream, Dublin Pizza Company and The Swan bar.
